Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Tanque Verde Ranch offers an experience like no other: upscale, boutique service and accommodations blended with authentically western activities, excursions and setting (adjacent to Saguaro National Park).

The grounds are gorgeous -- large, mature trees, cacti, corrals, a large heated pool, tennis courts and Southwestern-style landscaping. Rooms are big and tasteful with great views and complimentary Wi-Fi, but no TVs. The rationale is that without a TV, guests will better appreciate the gorgeous natural surroundings, however, for some that might be a deal breaker. 

There are activities for days here too: horseback riding, fishing excursions, hiking and biking trails, a spa and even a nature center where kids can learn about the desert. Guests can decide to book the room-only rate (which includes the breakfast buffet) or an all-inclusive rate with all meals included. Meals are hearty and generous (though they exclude alcohol) and are served in a ranch-style buffet. Fun dining events like the Old Homestead Breakfast Ride give guests the chance to ride to a remote camp on horseback and have a hot meal. Tanque Verde Ranch is a great choice for families seeking one-of-a-kind adventures as opposed to kicking back and relaxing.
